The Leedy Home

Architect:  Paul McKean Architecture LLC

After years of waiting for the perfect renovation project in the SE Portland Garthwick neighborhood, the homeowners finally purchased a 1960’s split level in fall 2010. The remodel added a master-suite level, increased the great room area and volume, and re-fashioned the exterior into a modern home ready for the next century. Major components from the owner’s original house were integrated into the new design, saving valuable time and money for the project while transforming it into a dream home.
